Sometimes a simple wall is not what you need and you want to create a mood or ambience that decorates it. What are the options? Gallery walls, bold paint, or original wallpaper, and you can also decorate them without breaking the bank – just make a wall art of your choice!
There are tons of wall art ideas out there, and today I want to introduce you to the most popular and trendy ones – large format and oversized wall art ideas. They are so fashionable because they immerse you in yourself and make a statement in any interior.
In fact, there are plenty of ideas for every budget, ability, and style. Painting or watercolor is perhaps the easiest idea here, and many of you love painting, I’m sure of that. Find your inner artist, take a canvas, some acrylic paints or paper and watercolors and just let yourself be enchanted by themes, colors and feelings. Seascapes, abstract prints, animals, cities – anything that comes to mind and maybe fits your decor theme will do. If you don’t feel like painting, create some geometric wall art using stencils or just washi tape to create some patterns.
Photo art is another popular idea. Just print out oversized pictures and place them in frames – so easy no inner artist needed! To make the photo art more eye-catching, cut it into pieces and attach them to separate tiles to add texture and volume to your photo. Another clever hack for those who aren’t feeling creative: take a finished thing, like a shower curtain with a print or picture, put it in a frame, and voila, you have great large format wall art. Poster wall art is one of my favorites: just take colored paper of your choice or take the usual and stencil it somehow, then write your favorite quotes, words or motivators on these posters and voila! To frame or not to frame is up to you.
Another idea that you would like to share with you today is a textured wall art, for example this wall art with fish scales. Such a work of art takes some time, effort, and patience, but it’s definitely worth it! Prepare metallic paper circles that imitate fish scales, then staple them row by row in the background and frame the piece when you’re done.

Baskets are often used for storage and arrangement, they give a cozy rustic feel and automatically make the room cooler. They are especially good for fall and winter when we are striving for warmth. That's why we're going to inspire you today with fantastic winter basket arrangements that will give your room a festive feel. Let's start!
Bushels / metal baskets
A bushel basket will certainly give your room an even more rustic touch and look more unusual than just a basket. Paint it red, put pine cones, evergreens and ornaments in it, and voila - a beautiful arrangement is ready! Metal baskets are welcome too, and I would recommend making the arrangements simpler and more natural - firewood, pine cones, and logs with blankets are enough to create a cute look. Both metal and bushel baskets can be decorated in a cool way outdoors.
Usual baskets provide a suitable base for winter and vacation arrangements of various kinds. You can fill them with evergreen plants, pine cones, berries, ornaments, foliage and greenery, and much more. Add plaid ribbons and bell bells to give your basket a vacation look, and you're done! Such pieces can be door decorations, centerpieces, porch and entrance decorations, enjoy your creations.
